Librarians might read the title of this website and think, "Huh, 1000 journals, my library subscribes to lots more than that," but these are the type of journals that contain stories, writings, and drawings by people all over the world. The site documents a project that consists of 1000 physical, paper and print journals that have been travelling at random throughout the world since August of 2000, with entries added by many kinds of people (although artists and graphic designers predominate). Visitors can view scans of page spreads from the journals, and find statistics on the project, such as the fact that 999 journals are in circulation, in 36 countries, 2 have been recently updated, and 227 scans are on display at the site. The site also provides instructions on how to get in line for a journal - contact someone who has one. To do this, find a journal at the site (numbers 1-700 work best) and locate the email of the last person to have it. (less)

This animation, created by Southwest Center for Microsystems Education (SCME), "illustrates the crystal growth of silicon using a seed crystal (or unit cell) positioned to the (100) plane. The silicon crystal grows into a large ingot which is sliced into silicon wafers. To verify the (100) plane of the wafer, the wafer is broken or cleaved causing it to break at 90 degree angles." The supporting Crystallography Learning Module and activities can be downloaded from the SCME website under Educational Materials. (less)

In 1895, the initial framework was in place for what would later become the University of Wisconsin's Library School. Now known as the School of Library and Information Studies (SLIS), the School continues to honor the traditions of librarianship, while incorporating the modern technologies that continue to push the discipline and profession forward. This particular collection of digital images documents the activities of students in the library school from the 1910s to the 1960s. Created by students in SLIS, the program includes digital images culled from yearlogs assembled by previous generations of students. Here visitors can browse the collection by people, year, place, or activity. Some of the photos include class pictures, May Day celebrations, and numerous images of faculty members and even the former home of the school, which for a number of years was a converted fraternity house on campus.

This week, a number of organizations are paying tribute to Frank Loesser, who would have been 100 on June 29. Over the course of his lifetime, Loesser penned some of Broadway's most enduring musicals, including "Guys and Dolls", and hundreds of different songs, including "Baby, It's Cold Outside". Loesser took his time getting into the world of Broadway, as he held a series of odd jobs before his luck finally took a turn for the better when fellow composer Burton Lane went to the front office of Paramount pictures (where Loesser was working) and said "You've got to hear this lyric writer. This guy's great." Loesser had a number of successes on Broadway throughout the 1950s and 1960s, and in 1961 he won the Pulitzer Prize for "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying". There's been renewed interest in that show lately, as it will return to Broadway next season starring Daniel Radcliffe of "Harry Potter" film fame.The first link leads to a profile of Loesser from a recent episode of NPR's "All Things Considered". The second link will take interested parties to a thoughtful appreciation of Loesser's work by Hedy Weiss, the theater critic for the Chicago Sun-Times. Moving on, the third link whisks users away to an excellent post from the "Jazz Beyond Jazz" website about the life and times of Frank Loesser. The post is full of fun surprises, including a link to Ray Bolger singing the Loesser tune "Once in Love With Amy" from the show "Where's Charley?" The fourth link leads to a biographical profile of Loesser, provided courtesy of the PBS program "Broadway: The American Musical". The fifth link leads to Loesser's data page from the Internet Broadway Musical Database (IBDB). The sixth and final link leads to the official Frank Loesser homepage. Here visitors can learn about upcoming productions of his work, along with upcoming performances featuring his songs and such. (less)
